Thread: RockApp Update Brings SSH Security: Another Reason To Use RockApp

  1. #41
    What an unnecessary post about some minor feature in Rock app! That's news?! Frontpage?!? Are you kidding me?

    The way MMI is slowly turning into Rock's ad platform is more than annoying.
    Do they pay you guys to write posts like this? Where else is this fanboy mentality coming from?!

    And btw, am I the only one thinking, that people who HACK their iPhone should be able to copy/paste one freaking line into terminal from one of the countless tutorials?!?

    I think it's pretty pathetic that ROCK are so desperate to get supporters of their software using something like this.

    Firstly.

    The "ikee virus" originated on the OptusNet Australia phone network (my network) -- I live in Melbourne, so I got it.

    After following some simple instructions to remove it, it stays away after changing your ROOT password, helps if MOBILE has the same new password too.

    Now, in the screen shot, there is a "Rogers Canada" user. This virus wouldn't infect anyone in Canada unless the Virus developer spread it over another network. I don't know whether he has, but I know the source code is available somewhere.

    Now Who, May I ask, would deliberately spread the virus through another international network?

    A jack*** that's who. If the network is NAT, the Virus has like 2% Chance of spreading throughout iPhone's. A network that isn't NAT, will be fully affected by the "ikee virus".

    Seriously. Unless you are deciding to spend your time somewhere on the East or West coast of Australia and are planning on purchasing a Pre-Paid Optus SIM Card, you don't need to change your Root password.

    I really don't understand the battle between the two. I wrote this post and I don't know how many times I've already said this. Rock is not meant to replace Cydia. This post is not meant to sway anyone in a particular direction and it was not meant to be the showdown people have made it out to be.

    A few of you ramble about how a jailbreaker should know how to use terminal and change their password. Fair enough, so what's your excuse for not understanding the difference between Cydia and Rock? Use Cydia for Cydia related things. Use Rock for Rock related things. It's not that hard to understand. Rock has just so happened to allow viewing of Repo's you've entered.

    For the love of god people. It's like you enjoy drama. This is not a battle between the two. You shouldn't be installing Rock thinking it's going to replace Cydia. No! You need to keep Cydia! It is CORE to your jailbreaking. Stop fighting! Where is the peace?!

(If you will remember, the reason we have the ability to change the password at all since 1.1.3 is because of the work I did repairing the passwd tool, which the people running Installer didn't care about and had let rot, as Apple's code didn't actually work correctly on the iPhone.) In fact, when I even indirectly mentioned adding such a feature to Cydia on Twitter a couple weeks ago, I again got a ton of people yelling back at me "don't you dare put that feature in Cydia" despite the fact that I was obviously right: users were installing SSH onto their phones and not realizing the security ramifications. *sigh* I hate people.
    I think the problem here is that a majority of the people on twitter are not a relative indication of what the jailbreak users want. I know over a dozen jailbroken users that do NOT use twitter and never will. Let alone keep up on things. They depend on their geeky friends for that.

    My suggestion, which I'm sure you already know, is to go with your guy instinct. Don't bother asking if people want such a feature. If YOU think its worth while, then it probably is. I don't think you'll lose anyone from making such decisions.

    Keep up the great work. Can't wait to see some Cydia refreshments

    Hi All,

    Ditto what MetaSerph has said...

    I really like this company/product, not only is it the fastest, the easiest, cleanest systems... I think its the best.

    And too offer this as an extra service, certainly will help all those who dont know how to change their passwords easily...

    Cheers,

    Lister

    RockApp is great, but I'm kinda pissed about the false popup. Sucks!

  8. #46
    I like it but it still advised me that my password was alpine when I had already changed it. So it can't tell what your password is, just sends the message regardless advising to update. It's a good thing.

  9. #47
    i am somewhat confused as to why it says the default mobile password is 'alpine' when I always thought it was 'dottie'.
    I was also under the impression that changing the 'mobile' user password will screw up some apps and is un-necessary as 'mobile does not have root access'.
    I will be sticking to cydia.
    The more I see of Rock, the less I like it.

    All you "Rock Bashers" are killing me! Every single post about something most of us see as positive for Rock, you guys jump on there and bash away. Don't you have anythnig better (more constructive) to do?

    Here is how it 'should' go down.

    You don't like Rock. Fine. Don't use it. Period. (they have enough users that they will not notice you are missing).

    Quit your ******** and move on. Life is about choices. Life has free things and things that cost money. Deal with it.

    I am now making the 'choice' to stop posting on this thread.

    Confucious: No - when you're at a pub on WiFi - someone could hack you. There are no problems with mobile password being changed. Stick with Cydia - sure. But change your password (dottie is so 2007 .

    All: There are 0% false popups. If you read the popup - it'll tell you the correct information (ie - see Nick's posting - he had changed root but not mobile - most people FORGET/UNAWARE to change the mobile and that's how people are still being hacked!). (Wait, wait - Rock works? OMG ).

    anybody getting the conflict message after installing rock app: "try disabling rock extensions" what actually does that mean. is it worth having the rock app if the extensions are disabled?

  14. #51
    When it says 'Disable..." just click yes and then reboot. That always does it for me. When it reboots, the Rock Extensions will be enabled and working again.

    You're right, of course, but without root access they can't do much harm - they could take my music, but if you'd seen my taste in music you'd realise no one would want to, but not do any serious harm. I know I should change mobile p/word but I'll stick with just changing the root one for now.
    I'm obviously getting dottie in my old age...

    It's funny how the Rock is trying to help people from being hacked and some people still think there's a catch or something......lol. For those who want to disreguard the notification about changing the default password. Disreguard all you want. I just hope you don't get hacked.

  17. #54
    If you Uninstall Rock will it set your ssh password back to the root/alpine default?

  18. #55
    Confucious, LOL. Funny about getting "dottie" on your old age.

    g12007: No - uninstalling rock doesn't do anything with your passwords
    Confucious: All of your data (email, calendar, sms) is owned by mobile. I know most people don't want this to be taken/modified/etc. Of course, if you're comfortable with that being taken/modified - leave mobile password unchanged.

    I have never seen so many rock fanboys in all my life!!!!
    and yes this is a selling point to get people to install rock. I don't blame them but let's not be naive and think rock devs did this to be "good guys" they implimented a feature they thought would help them push their installer to sell their apps. In my opinion rock is trash and so says most people I've ever talked to. And yes I have tried it multiple times and it still sucks. but hey if you want it on your phone I don't give two shits. I love all you people that bash myself an others for expressing our opinions on it then turn right around and do the same thing but hype rock. I'm not a fanboy of anything. I like what I like and I don't like rock because I think it is worthless trash. Have a wonderful day all of you who will give crap because you have rocks penduals in your cheeks.

    I had already changed my super user root password but it said I didn't. When I tried to use rock to change it, RockApp crashed.
